I've gone ahead and recorded a 1.5 hour screencast going through and demonstrating how to build out a virtual environment with Wix and Team Deploy deploying onto 2 target virtual machines.

This screencast includes all of the details that you could need for setting up team deploy including:

  • Setup of a domain controller & domain accounts
  • Installing Team Foundation Server 2008
  • Setting up Team Build
  • Setting up 2 target machines
  • Setting up a new team project
  • WIX 3.0 setup
  • Team Build Setup
  • Configuration of Team Build
  • Configuration of Team Build TFSBuild.Proj with Team Deploy.

This video is very thorough and a bit long but has everything you need to get started.

Check it out over at: http://www.noblegroupinternational.com/content/alm/teamdeploy/TeamDeploy.html

Don't forget to use the table of contents button (to the left of the sound button) in the controls at the bottom of the player.

Quick note the last 5 minutes of the video are the most exciting (step 120: Check-in changes to kick off CI-Build) because I demonstrate everything working together and doing multiple deploys on Continuous Integration builds.

Feedback is welcome.
